Our laboratory is interested in applying the conceptual and methodologic framework of stem cell biology to the study of brain cancer. In our view, brain cancer is a caricature of normal development but with aberrant molecular regulation of self-renewal and differentiation. We study both human brain cancer and mouse models of brain cancer to ask questions about the cell of origin, nature of the cells that propagate cancer growth, and explore novel therapeutic targets using genetic and small molecule approaches.
